Mine has been as low as 60,000, and as high as 6 million (for some reason, when I was pregnant it rose, and dropped after preg)
I have a friend, who 5 yrs ago, had a viral load of 13 million, and now her VL is 1000, or sometimes even lower, she has even had a less than 43, but still detectable.
The bottom line is: if you have a detectable virus, you have Hep C, and if you have Undetectable viral load (less than 43) then you dont have the virus.
By the way, her liver enzymes are still quite elevated, with her very low viral load~
